Is Tozawa the next challenger?

Akira Tozawa vs. Oney Lorcan vs. The Brian Kendrick vs. Ariya Daivari vs. Mike Kanellis – Fatal 5-Way Match: WWE 205 Live, May 21, 2019

In a special showcase of some of WWE 205 Live’s finest Cruiserweights – and as a way to find a new challenger to WWE Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese -- Akira Tozawa, Oney Lorcan, The Brian Kendrick, Ariya Daivari and Mike Kanellis battle in a Fatal 5-Way Match.

At WWE Money in the Bank, Tony Nese’s incredible 2019 continued with a successful WWE Cruiserweight Championship defense against another Superstar who was previously undefeated this year – Ariya Daivari. Keeping his reputation as a fighting champion, The Premier Athlete was once again in search of his next challenger. Of course, there is no shortage of hungry contenders vying for a title opportunity, and that was evidenced by the Fatal 5-Way Match that took place last week.

Believing his loss at WWE Money in the Bank was a fluke, Daivari competed against Akira Tozawa, Oney Lorcan, Mike Kanellis and The Brian Kendrick, as each Superstar looked to prove they were more than ready to battle Nese. The contest was undoubtedly a showcase of five of the top competitors in the Cruiserweight division, and there was no shortage of thrills and ovations from the WWE Universe as the action reached breathtaking intensity.

However, the chaotic nature of the match gave Tozawa the opportunity to steal Daivari’s momentum in the final moments and roll up The Persian Lion for the victory.

With an impressive victory against four of the division’s best, has The Stamina Monster proven he’s ready for another title opportunity?
